Course Tutor - Caitlin Buck
For more than 30 years, Caitlin has been working closely with archaeologists and environmental scientists,
helping them to articulate and manage their expert knowledge. During that time, she has designed
and implemented tailored, Bayesian methods for combining such knowledge with data to produce probabilistic solutions
to problems such as: radiocarbon, tree-ring and ice core dating, the provenancing of archaeological ceramics
and the interpretation of field survey data.
Caitlin is currently Professor in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield
where she teaches undergraduate and postgraduate students of statistics about a wide range of topics,
including how to communicate with and elicit knowledge from experts from a range of disciplines.
